What is xfce4-places-plugin?

This plugin is a menu with quick access to folders, documents, and
removable media. The places plugin brings much of the functionality of
GNOME's Places menu to Xfce.


Release notes for 1.2.0

It's been a little over a year since the last places release, so here
it is:

 * Updates a ton of translations
   (thanks to the i18n team)
 * Adds XDG user dirs support
   (thanks to Andea Santilli, bug #4461)
 * Uses XDG icon names
   (thanks to Yves-Alexis Perez, bug #5034)
 * Shows "Eject" option on removable volumes when Thunar 1.0 does
   (bug #4136)
 * Makes the properties dialog non-modal
 * Honors GTK's menu icon size (bug #4744)
 * Calls the file browser through exo instead of directly opening
   Thunar (thanks to Christian Dywan, bug #4463)
 * Fixes some issues on shutdown
 * Takes advantage of the panel's menu positioning on Xfce 4.6

Enjoy :)
